Working with Cloudflare
Steps to be followed for enabling HTTPS
- Find the loadbalancer CNAME that has been provisioned as a part of the environment setup by navigating to the Domains section of that environment. This can also be done using the cli.
- Add loadbalancer as a CNAME in the DNS for all the domains you want provisioned in that environment. You can use wildcard domains like
- Enable Full SSL mode (non-strict) as per this article. This ensures traffic is secure all the way until the loadbalancer receives the traffic.
- Disable cloudflare proxying for ~5 minutes (grey cloud) so that the letsencrypt certificate is issued to the application. Turn it back on after 5 minutes.
Note: For a deep subdomain, ensure that the intermediate (sub-)domains have DNS entries.
Advanced Note: If you are using non-standard ports (other than 443) serving HTTP traffic, please refer to this article.
